Monday Question Day- Commons Finds?

Today is question day:

What has been your best commons box find?

I don’t hit a LCS enough to search commons boxes but over the years in my common’s boxes I have found a 1997 Fleer David Arias (Ortiz) RC, a 2010 Topps Chrome Mike (Giancarlo) Stanton Refractor RC and a 2011 Gypsy Queen Ty Cobb Sepia Mini. I sold the Stanton and Ortiz rookies in late 2015/early 2016 and sadly the Stanton card got lost in the mail.


  1. You found those in commons boxes?!? Wow! I still dont have an Ortiz RC. My best commons box find might be a short-printed Alex Ovechkin All-World insert. I think i paid 75 cents for it, and it was once $50 in Beckett (not sure what it's 'worth' now, I haven't read a Beckett in years)

  2. For me, I'd have to say 10 cents for a 1983 Topps Ryne Sandberg rookie.

  3. Hmmm... tough to say. I'd have to go back and dig through all of my dime box purchases and flea market finds. A few years ago, my buddy and I drove down to San Diego and picked up a collection someone was giving away. I found a Tom Brady rookie card in one of the boxes. That was pretty cool.
